Bon Pastor Metro Analysis




The residents of Barcelona’s Bon Pastor neighborhood have a long history of displacement, originating from the routes of immigrant relocation from Montjuic and slum dwellers along the River Besos. The area has recently begun a dramatic and long-term transformation in order to gentrify and densify the area as the once-industrial sites surrounding the area are vacated. Intrinsic to this transition is the development of various social programs, river rejuvenation and improved infrastructure.

In analyzing the area as an emergent region for research line 1: Emergent Territories, a survey of the local population data, density, metro station locations and current state serve as a nice compliment. The following is a comparison of various statistics from the metro stations within 3km from the Bon Pastor neighborhood, in the district of Sant Andreu, using data collected from Barcelona and Badalona municipality 2005 census data, Wikipedia, and personal investigative research and data collection.
